Here's the video for the second single from Vampire Weekend's latest album Contra featuring a slightly bizarre jumble of cameos from the likes of RZA from Wu Tang Clan, Lil Jon, Joe Jonas (from the Jonas Brothers no less) and Jake Gyllenhaal.

WTF? Why are people so hung up on Joe and him being in the Jonas Brothers? Grow/lighten up people. Are you really THAT narrowminded? Joe's funny. I thought he was a great part of the vid.

I love this.
I actually thought Joe Jonas was the funniest part. Apparently he's a funny kid. Good to know.
